Matt Scott's beard: Shave it or Save it?

FOX61 is teaming up with The Village to help keep kids warm this winter.

HARTFORD, Conn. — Over the past month, Meteorologist Matt Scott has sported a beard after having grown it while on vacation. 

Now he wants to know: Save It or Shave It?

FOX61 has teamed up with The Village with the goal to help keep kids warm this winter season with "Save It or Shave It: The Village Winter Coat Drive."

We asked for your input. Viewers donated a minimum of $5 in the "Save It" or "Shave It" pots, to cast your vote on whether Matt will keep his beard or it goes!

Every $50 donated will allow The Village to purchase a new coat. The goal is to buy 100 new coats in time for the chilly weather to set in. 

Children will receive the coats from The Village at a community event on Oct. 27. More details to come.
